FreeWheel — "Lifecycle-reconfigurable Smart Mobility Platform to enable autonomous and cost-effective personalized solutions for social inclusion of disabled and elderly while leveraging Additive Manufacturing technologies" is a research project financed under the European Union research and innovation funding programme "Horizon 2020", within the theme "New technologies and life cycle management for reconfigurable and reusable customised products" (Factories of the Future FoF 10-2017).

The project exploits the high degree of flexibility of design and production of components by additive manufacturing to deliver a mobility unit that adds a motorisation to manual wheelchairs or a fully customised wheelchair, hence supporting the users in moving around more easily and autonomously.

Role in FreeWheel project

End User. Genny Angels will provide the users' perspective and will make available its catalogue of wheelchairs and existing modules for studying the design of FreeWheel module.

OUR MISSION:
To improve life with technology

We believe that thanks to the technologies present in the market we can do a lot to improve the life of people with disabilities. We live in a world where changes are continual, epochal and needed, but we are firmly convinced that it is not necessary to think about ourselves only in the future: we can use what we already have to make many people happy.

THE CHANGE CAN TAKE PLACE NOW

WE COULD ALREADY DO A LOT, WITH YOUR HELP

"We are surrounded by incredible innovations. If rethought and adapted to disability, all these innovations could help millions of people to live better not only in the future, but now. Help us to bring technology to disability".

2. STUDY AND RESEARCH OF TECHNOLOGIES

With the aim of creating the concept of a Smart City, we conceived 5cm.it web platform, a tool which is able to highlight the accessibility of public and private services by means of crowdsourcing, the possibility of freely sharing data. Our aim is to offer a useful service for all citizens. Accessibility involves everyone!
